    Berry ginger chia smoothies.

    For those who have followed me for a while, you know that my family is a bit smoothie crazy. I start most of my mornings with a fresh, flavorful smoothie. I keep my breakfasts from getting boring by experimenting with different smoothie additives, and two of my favorites are ginger and chia seeds. Packed full of nutritional value and flavor, they inspired this Berry Ginger Chia Smoothie.

    Ingredients

    • Berries: To keep things easy, I have a bag of frozen mixed berries in my freezer, but fresh or frozen, use a mix of your favorite. Mine includes raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries.
    • Banana: Acts as a natural sweetener for the smoothie as well as adds nutrients like potassium and vitamin C.
    • Milk: Use whatever milk you have, I use skim milk or almond milk typically.
    • Greek yogurt: I prefer to use Greek yogurt as it’s thicker, higher in protein, and lower in sugar than regular yogurt.
    • Chia seeds: Adds a bit of a crunch, as well as packs in protein, omega 3s, and antioxidants.
    • Fresh ginger: Balances out the fruity flavors, adds a fresh bite, and is great for digestive health.
    • Cinnamon: Adds some warmth and sweetness to the smoothie.
